Where to sell Rolex watches in Canada?
You have multiple choices when deciding where to sell Rolex watches in Canada:
When you’re looking to sell your Rolex watch as quickly as possible, you might have considered a pawnshop. Pawnshops are known for being a fast way to get cash on the spot, but you usually are not leaving with the best price. Many pawnshops do not employ watch experts who can accurately value and price your Rolex on the current secondhand watch market, which means you may lose out on potential profits.
Auction houses are a traditional selling option for high value items. When you bring your Rolex to an auction house, it will be reviewed by a horologist, priced and then put on auction. There is no guarantee when or if your timepiece will be bought however, which means that you could be waiting for many months. Even if your watch does eventually sell, the auction house will take a percentage of your earnings.
In just a few minutes you can create an online ad for your Rolex with websites like Craigslist and eBay. With your private ad you can set your ideal price and sell to a buyer of your choice. While selling on your own terms sounds tempting, you must be willing to wait months or years for serious buying offers while always staying cautious of online scammers.

How to get the best price for your Rolex?
Model: Be sure that you know your Rolex’s model number when beginning the selling process.
Serial Number: The serial number is also important information for potential buyers as this enables them to verify your watch’s make and authenticity. You can find your Rolex’s serial number both on its paperwork and between the lugs. As the bracelet needs to be removed to see the serial number printed between the lugs, make sure to only have the bracelet removed by a professional watchmaker.
Age: The age of your watch can affect its overall value. For example, a vintage Daytona will net a different value than its modern-day counterpart.
Condition: The condition of your watch plays a big role in the overall value of your Rolex. Your offer will be lowered if your watch has:
- Significant damages
- Not been regularly serviced
- Been repaired with third party components
Box and Papers: These are the box and papers that came with your Rolex when purchased. With these you can demonstrate the authenticity of your Rolex and receive a higher offer as the box and papers are desirable materials for watch collectors.
Additional materials: Be sure to include any additional links, straps, recent servicing receipts, or warranty cards.
